What is the Navigation Button Show Hide Button?

The Navigation Bar Show Hide Button is a cool feature that allows you to Pin the Navigation Bar in place. By double tapping it can either be pinned or unpinned, When unpinned it will hide itself when in most menus and to show it you will need to swipe up from the bottom. This clutters the screen and gives you more screen space or Screen real estate.
